Only a couple of days until the release of the much anticipated release of Ubuntu 7.04 and I think there are probably many like me who are itching to get in the queue. On the other hand if you are willing to wait you can do so and listen to the next podcast while you are at it. Here is the link for the next podcast, Episode 32.

Main - what is new in feisty
Gut a file from the inside out
cat /dev/null > foobar.log
This is a nifty trick to clear out the contents of a file but not remove the file itself. Suppose foobar.log has gotten ridiculously huge and you want to remove all the stuff inside it but you don't want to delete the file, simply cat /dev/null and direct the output to your file. In other words, take /dev/null (a black hole of nothingness) and stuff it inside foobar.log.
See you again soon!!!
